A Musical Journey in the Footsteps of Lewis & Clark (2006)

“I commend you on an incredible job. This is different from everything else out there.” -Robert J. Moore, Jr., co-author of Lewis and Clark: Tailor Made, Trail Worn–Army Life, Clothing & Weapons of the Corps of Discovery

“You will enjoy the musical journey as much as I have.” –Gary Moulton, University of Nebraska, editor of The Journals of the Lewis and Clark Expedition

The journals of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark make many references to music and dancing. The leaders of the expedition were not musicians themselves. But two of the men who went with them—Pierre Cruzatte and George Gibson—played the violin, and others sang. Music brought welcome entertainment to the men, far from home. It also served as a diplomatic bridge to the American Indians they met on their way. This CD and the accompanying book trace their journey. . .
